I looked on CL for a number of months for a floor standing drill press, but everything was way over priced for a used tool. I kept going back to the HF 17”, 16 speed model, which priced with a 25% off coupon was a bit over $340 with tax.

This was a pleasant surprise, as it was accurate from the get-go. The particular model I got, will slow down to 200rpm, so turning large bits/holesaws are no problem. The only gig I would give it, is that the light isn’t very bright. It’s a heavy, heavy machine. But with the mobile base, it moves around easily.
